Our History

All of our directors have families with several generations experience in the plumbing and bathroom markets. Laura and Ray Andes have worked in the industry all of their lives as did their father Peter Andes and grandfather Alfred Andes. Peter and Alfred started their own business A W Andes and Son Limited in 1959. Laura and Ray followed into the business which in recent times became part of the Durston Group which incorporated, Fayers Builders and Plumbers Merchants, Just Add Water and A W Andes Distribution.
Kevin followed his father into his plumbing business, served a 4 year apprenticeship and qualified with his city and guilds as a plumbing engineer. At a very young age he took over the family Plumber’s Merchants business based in the city of London in Goswell Road EC1 called M & O Plumbers Merchants, becoming the Managing Director in 1986. Over recent years this expanded into three branches including the M & O Bathroom Centre.
